October 4th and 5th mark a return to one of our favorite events of the year – the Ravenswood ArtWalk. Moss will throw open its [garage] door to everyone who wants to peek inside our work space at the corner of Byron and Ravenswood and appreciate the work of the two artists we’ll be hosting: Cape Horn Illustration, and The Studio 312.
If you missed us at City Made last weekend, or if you want to see our home base, the Art Walk is a great opportunity to come visit the Moss HQ and see where all the magic happens! The Ravenswood ArtWalk features both the neighborhood and local artists – giving the local community a chance to meet its neighbors and view some beautiful art works. Find a full list of participants in the ArtWalk here.
Saturday Oct 4, 2014, 11am – 7pm
Sunday Oct 5, 2014, 11am – 6pm
The opening reception is Friday, Oct 3, 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM at the Ravenswood Event Center ($10 donation). Don’t miss the ArtWalk Detour on Saturday, on Ravenswood between Berteau and Belle Plaine where (for a $5 suggested donation) you can enjoy live music, a craft beer garden, a children’s corner and an array of food truck fare. The Detour will be Saturday only from noon ’till 9:00PM
Here at moss, we’ll be displaying our own furniture and work space – a converted utility station that always has passsersby peeking curiously under our partially open front garage door. In the spirit of the ArtWalk, we’ll also be playing host to two Chicago artists:
The Studio 312 features the artwork and photography of Chicago artist Tim Jarosz, who creates dramatic pieces printed on chromalux board or aluminum sheet metal. Here are just a few examples. Check out more on his website or in person at Moss HQ during the ArtWalk!
Cape Horn Illustration is the husband-and-wife team of Phil Thompson and Katie Lauffenburger who translate their passion for illustration and for mapping into beautifully rendered pen and ink maps, logos and images of local buildings. Learn more about their work here at their website … or by chatting them up during the ArtWalk here at moss!
See you soon at the ArtWalk!
